Hype or hypermarkets around home improvement franchises
With the big hypermarkets taking most of the retail business and the high streets going into decline isn’t it time to start buoying up the local community with hardware and handyman connection services and working as a team to build up the local business presence and take back some of the local spending power.
How about building a local business, not only for the sake of profit but for the sake of more local handymen getting connected to more of the local jobs?
Everything is done online nowadays so wouldn’t it be nice if budding DIY’ers had a local hardware where they could pick up what they need and also get the advice they need from a local expert. You can use a sales and marketing franchise to help you promote your business
Many of the shops in the local town are charity shops which of course are a necessity to a certain extent, and equally as many of the other premises are cafes and coffee shops.
So there are still plenty of potential customers mooching around town and the opportunity for them to pop in to a new hardware in town and spread the word, especially if the prices are comparable to the big out of town superstores.
This is where perhaps home improvement opportunities may come into the fore. There is the possibility of owning a retail home hardware type with thousands of products available to the local customer base either in the store or online.
The minimum investment level for something like this is going to be around £50,000 but this is going to include shop fitting and stock. Is this the kind of home hardware one you are considering?
Or are you less interested in a retail store and more interested in a home hardware option where you can work yours from home?
It is possible to find a handyman connection or home hardware franchise with entry level fees ranging from around £10,000.
If you are considering home improvement opportunities whether it is laying driveways, landscaping or fitting and plumbing in a new bathroom, planning and installing new kitchens or even a chimney sweep business… all of these are possible with initial investment fees of between £10,000 and £20,000.
So there is certainly plenty of scope for a franchise from home business to fit in with any existing skills or experience you may have. Maybe your skills lie in gas and electricity or drainage solutions.
DIY skills required
With the decline in knowledge of DIY skills and the new generation having less and less time for contemplating home based tasks, more and more people are turning to the professionals to come in and fix what needs fixing safely and efficiently.
Each to their own profession, we live in world where we do what we are good at and we outsource what we are not good at. If you are searching for a home hardware option then it seems you have to be ‘Johnny on the spot’ because they are few and far between.
The franchises in this area are more related to maintenance like driveways and gardens than odd jobs like changing light fittings and replacing washers.
